Microsoft will be providing Jamaica with the software called the Child Abducting Tracking System - CATS, which is used by major police forces worldwide to help track missing children. The software valued at an estimated J$18-million (US$200,000) provides data that links all police forces throughout the world and will allow Jamaica to tap into that source to access information that will assist in the search when a child goes missing. Microsoft will also provide the training for members of the Jamaica police force and will be responsible for upgrading the equipment, reports Minister Montague's at the launch of the Ananda Alert system by Prime Minister Bruce Golding at Jamaica House. The Ananda Alert was named in tribute to 11-year old Ananda Dean who was murdered last year.
